Kiwibank to join Government guarantee scheme
Kiwibank is signing up to the Government deposit guarantee scheme immediately, Chief Executive Sam Knowles announced today.

"Kiwibank is a strong bank and performing particularly well. However with the current international financial turmoil, some people may have been uneasy about the security of financial institutions. All customers can now be absolutely confident about the security of their funds," Mr Knowles said. The guarantee covers all deposits held by Kiwibank.For further information:
